Harry Flynn responds to anti-Catholic editorial in Strib
"Understandably" the editorial states, "Catholics don't find 'The Pope and the Witch' funny at all." With that statement, we most certainly agree. We could hardly find a nightmarish parody of the papacy, a fundamental tenet of our faith that has 2,000 years of history, to be very funny. One doubts that a play viciously satirizing a revered or historic leader of the Jewish or Islamic faiths as a heroin-addicted, bumbling paranoid would characterized by those faith adherents as "funny."
Thank you for telling it like it is, Your Excellency!
Ray over at Stella Borealis has been the one-stop shop for this issue, which should be of interest not just to local Catholics, but to the broader Catholic community. After all - if they can pull this despicable play off here, chances are they can pull it off in your neck of the woods too, using your tax dollars!
